Creek-Backed Duncanville Home On Heavily Treed Lot – And Minutes From Downtown

Share News:

DuncanvilleOne of the best things about the Tuesday Two Hundred price point is the fact that you can often find a well-maintained, move-in ready home that just needs a few taste-specific updates to make it your own — like this Duncanville home on a gorgeous lot backing up to a creek.

Listed by Judie Burnham with Century 21 Judge Fite Company, this five-bedroom, two-and-half bath home at 502 Willow Circle in Duncanville sits on an incredible, heavily-treed lot with a creek running behind it. And with 3,430 square feet of space, it’s a perfect family home.

And while some might take a look at some of the finishes and say, “It hasn’t been updated,” and then nix it, rest assured that at $269,000 some savvy buyer is going to snap this up, knowing that this is the kind of home you can buy, live in, and slowly update to your tastes.

“The home has been very well maintained,” Burnham said.

And it’s been modified since it was built in 1968, too, with the upstairs bedroom extended another 140 square feet to become a master suite, and the garage modified to become a basement living area with 676 square feet of bonus space and three sets of French doors that lead out to that park-like backyard and creek.

Burnham said the home also allows for some incredible flexibility when it comes to how you use the space.

“The home can be four, five, or six bedrooms, with two, three, or four living areas,” she said, adding that all the bedrooms are generously sized and have large closets.

The foyer of the home leads to what could be a formal living room, with a wood-burning fireplace that’s just perfect for family Christmas celebrations and cozy (albeit infrequent) chilly nights. The galley kitchen is open to two living areas.

Outside, you can enjoy the view from the covered patio, the open patio, or the balcony, which has spiral stairs that lead from one level to the other.

Practicalities have also been addressed, with three HVAC units to keep the multi-level abode cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and a storm shelter room for safety should weather take a turn for the worse.

The home is listed for $269,000.
